Todd Grimshaw (Bruno Langley) is to be scarred for life after taking a beating from a gang of youths.
Todd – who has recently alienated the rest of the Grimshaw clan thanks to his underhand dealings – will be left feeling increasingly resentful towards his family in the wake of the attack.
“Todd has been vile to his family. He’s pushed them too far and he knows it,” says producer Stuart Blackburn. “He’s genuinely trying to atone for those sins, but then he gets savagely beaten. It’s a beating that will leave him scarred for life – however, it’s not his assailant he’s going to blame, but his family. Especially Eileen, Sean and Jason. The whole lot of them.”
Actor Bruno Langley returned to Coronation Street in November 2013, with Todd having subsequently angered many of the Street’s residents thanks to his manipulation of Marcus Dent and his management of the dodgy loft renovation at No 9 that left Tyrone Dobbs badly injured.
But how will Todd’s nearest and dearest react to the attack that leaves him with permanent injuries? Find out when Coronation Street airs these scenes later in the autumn.
